1974 Hornet Hatchback by AMC
Hi fellow youtubers! So there is a bit of a story here regarding this
nice example of a 1974 AMC Hornet. I used to own this car from 2002-2007.
Then, I sold it. I regretted doing that and so this year, I decided I was
going to ask the person I sold it to in 2007 if I could buy it back. I had
asked that person to contact me if they ever decided to sell it to offer me
the first right of refusal to buy it back. I even called this person every
year since 2007 to touch base with them, see how they were doing and if
they were enjoying the car. I found out in Oct 2011, when I made my call
to this person to inquire about buying it back, that they had sold it in
JUNE of 2011!! They had never even contacted me to tell me that they were
going to sell it. (Even though I had provided them with all of my still
valid contact info that was still with all the paperwork when I bought the
car back!) I was certainly "bummed" (that's me being "nice") to say the
least, but I tracked down the car from the June sale and then found out it
had been sold yet again in only a six month timeframe! Out of
desperation, I put an add out on craigslist with a photo of the car and a
nice gentleman called me back who knew the new current owner! (That's like
winning the LOTTERY!! WOW!) So, true to his word, the nice gentleman who
called me in response to my craigslist add, contacted the current owner and
gave them my number. The current owner actually called me back and I
explained to them that I used to own this car and would love the chance to
buy it back. They thought about it for a day and decided they would sell
it back to me. I was elated!! I felt so lucky to have been able to just
find it again, let alone buy it back! To learn that it was still in great
shape after five years of not owning it was just MORE icing on the cake!!
So, I hopped on a flight to Ohio and drove this car all the way back to
Palm Springs, CA where I live! (I had it gone through thoroughly by a
mechanic first!) Even so, the trip was not without incident (I broke down
in Stroud, OK,). Again, lady luck was on my side and I was able to get it
repaired and made it the rest of the way home without incident! That is
why I mention in the video about being glad to get it back and what I'm
referencing when I say "what I went through to get it back!"
This car was originally an Arizona car and although it is not a Hornet
X, it is a very well optioned out Hornet. It's original factory color was
Sienna Orange as evidenced under the hood. Before I bought it (the first
time) in 2002, it had already been re-painted to it's current Grasshopper
Green (paint code C-8) color. I think the color suits the car nicely, (and
it's great to say I have a "Green Hornet"), but I would love to re-paint
the under hood area to match the rest of the car. Even though this car
only shows about 47,000 miles on the clock, I would like to slowly restore
it and have all the systems of the car gone through since she is 38 years
old. Other than the re-paint and new belts, hoses and tires, etc, the rest
is pretty much all stock and original. I think the design and body lines
of this car have withstood the test of time well. She certainly draws lots
of attention and thumbs up from folks everywhere. I had a lady once follow
me for ten miles just to ask me what kind of car it was! It's fun to take
her out and enjoy the nostalgia that it brings out in people. People tell
me all the time that they used to own one,or that they learned to drive in
one, or even that theirs was a POS or that it was the worst car they ever
owned!! LOL. It's all good!
My Mom had a four door Hornet that we tooled around in when I was a
small kid, so for me, I love the good memories that it brings back to me of
that period of time in my life. The music was fun and times were simpler.
This little two door hatchback, with it's V-8 and A/C, bucket seats,
"hidden compartment" and two rear view mirrors and optional alloy wheels
makes this a very well optioned Hornet! The fact that it is also in very
well maintained shape and it isn't a rust bucket and that it has NOT been
abused makes it now even MORE rare! Before I bought it back, I looked long
and hard for another Hornet hatchback and there were REAL SLIM pickings out
there! Most were the in-line sixes (still an awesomely rugged and stout
engine!), without A/C and most had bench seats. I can tell you that in the
last five years, a LOT of these have been crushed or sold for scrap. So,
maybe I didn't win the "mega-millons" lottery, but I sure feel like I
"buzzed" in on the amazing chance to get her back! Thanks for your
interest in my video and for reading my small book if you made it this far!
Please feel free to leave a comment if you can behave and write
something nice or meaningful. Peace and take care everyone!
